In about two weeks, Microsoft is going to release Windows 10 online and through retail stores. The company has not yet shared the retail packaging for the new version of its operating system but nevertheless, the Windows 10 retail packaging has been leaked online for all to see. It’s interesting to realize that this might be the last retail packaging that Microsoft ever creates for Windows.
Windows packaging sure has changed over the years. The box art for Windows 10 seems pretty plain, it’s a more modern and cleaner look than the Windows 8 box art which had a big Windows logo in front.
The new retail packaging instead focuses on the new Windows 10 wallpaper that was created using lasers and an image of the desktop to show people what Windows 10 looks like. It is cool packaging. It is just amazing to think about how much it has changed over the years.
Microsoft is also going to be offering USB drive copies of Windows 10 through retail stores, which will be packaged in small boxes that simply have blue or purple Windows logos. Again, keeping it simple. So it is interesting to think that this might be the final retail packaging for Windows, because the company is moving its operating system to a “service model,”. That means that in the future it will solely use the internet to deliver major updates and iterations. That’s the way it is these days. But we will always remember the various Windows packages through the years. These should be a good collectors item.
